You will recall not very long ago MSI unveiled their latest plans to counter Apple’s MacBook Air with two new ultra slim laptops, the X340 and X360. And what we have here is the X340. At the time we knew very little, but now more specs have been revealed at the CeBIT. The X340 will be equipped with a 13-inch wide LED display in the golden 16:9 ratio, the X340 will support various multimedia functions with HDMI and built-in Blu-ray. Continue reading »

You will definitely remember during this year’s CES when Asus dropped an exciting bombshell featuring their latest creation the Eee HTPC Keyboard or Eee Keyboard PC. In a one line summary, it’s a pc inside a multimedia keyboard complete with wireless connectivity and of course that attractive but tiny 5-inch touchscreen display.
The wonderful news is that Asus have now revealed the pricetag which will be placed on this new fascinating gadget, CEO Jerry Shen says they’re working on two models to be released by summer time and these will range from $400 (£285/€317) – $600 (£428/€476). Prices like these will definitely be competitive against notebooks and netbooks, but I suppose the Eee Keyboard PC, once out will probably be in a market of its own! Check out the specs if you think you missed out on the Asus Eee Keyboard PC during the beginning of the year.
We only spoke about it a week ago and now LG has officially announced their latest flagship – the LG Arena KM900 at the Mobile World Congress 2009 in Barcelona. I know some have been asking us when exactly the Arena will be available in the UK, we can now confirm that it will arrive very shortly next month! Meanwhile, we’ve got an official demo video of the new and very exciting 3D cube user interface (UI) for you to see right after the break.

When we were sent the LG Renoir KC910 for some hands on review, we were already well impressed with LG’s ability to have made such major all round multimedia improvements in the new LG Viewty successor. But now it seems LG’s plans are official and they will be taking that even further for the coming 2009. As you will have heard, just last week, a picture of a new full touchscreen phone, the LG Arena KM900 surfaced. We can now be fairly confident that this is true and this latest flagship called the LG Arena will have some very stunning features and even more so, some features which have not yet even been seen on mobile phones (not that I know of)! The LG Arena will have a unique user interface that takes the form of a 3D cube. This new cube-based layout provides four customisable home screens for direct access to all features. This makes accessing music, movies, pictures much more easier than most phones, so if you thought the LG Renoir’s updated user interface already showed vast improvement, the LG Arena’s user interface will definitely strike you as something quite unique.
Though we don’t know all about its specs at the moment, this will be revealed in greater detail in due course – Mobile World Congress, February 16th at 2.00pm (CET). All we do know from our friends at the LG Blog is the below, though I wish I could find out more about whether its got an amazing camera sooner!
I suppose the title could also be called rich people furnitures too. Do you have a laptop and often like to do your work on it while sitting in front of your tv? Well now you don’t need to make it so complicated. No more dragging the laptop out into the lounge and run out of battery after a few hours, then to find yourself looking for the laptop power adapter. Because the Athena Multimedia Sofa will take care of all of that, it’s got its own built in pc. The designer Artanova hasn’t given any specs, but from what it looks like, the display should have touch capability. The luxury though does come at an eye-popping price of approx. $15,436, which seems like a bit over the top in these hard times – so the PC in this sofa better be a quiet one, if not that would be quite annoying!
